Vision Trips

If you want to move from the sidelines to the frontlines — World Encounter can provide the opportunity.

World Encounter provides leadership and training for dynamic cross cultural experiences. Short term teams are involved in hands-on work serving among the poor through community development, service projects, and leadership training.

Albert Schweitzer once said, “The only ones among you who will really be happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.” Your life will be dedicated to something. Make it something that counts!
